Astroland's Last Day

Coney Island's Astroland closed yesterday, perhaps for the last time ever. If you never got sick on the Tilt-A-Whirl or came off the Cyclone mysteriously bleeding, you missed out on one of the city's most outrageous and real cultural experiences. After this year, the Cyclone will stick around, but the colorful lights and characters that surrounded it may never return.
